Tampa, Florida - Audra Nasser of Tampa's Dinner Done creates an Easter dish that is simple to prepare and and that you are sure to enjoy.

Baked Eggs & Ham

A unique and delicious Easter brunch dish!


You'll Need:


2 cups prepared mashed potatoes (cooked, seasoned)

2 cups diced ham

6 tsp fresh chopped chives

4 large eggs

A dash of salt and pepper to taste

6 tsp parmesan cheese

4 Tbsp heavy cream

4 14-ounce ramekin dishes



To Prepare:


Preheat oven to 375F.   In a buttered ramekin dish, add ½ cup cubed ham.  Top with ½ cup mashed potatoes and then, using the back of a spoon, make a slight indent in the mashed potatoes.  Sprinkle 1 ½ tsp of chives and parmesan cheese over the mashed potatoes and then crack an egg on top of the potatoes. 


Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper and then top with 1 Tbsp of heavy cream.   Repeat for the remaining ramekins.  Bake for 15-20 minutes until the egg whites are completely set and the yolks have cooked to your desired consistency*.


* We recommend baking until the yolks begin to thicken, but are not fully cooked.


Did you know?


Spooning a small amount of cream over the egg before baking helps prevent the egg from drying out as it cooks!  Also, if your ramekins are a different size, simply adjust the amount of ingredients to fit your dishes.


Nutritional Info Per Serving:

Serves 4. 365 cal, 19.5g fat (8.5g sat), 284mg chol, 1520mg sodium, 18g carb, 2g fiber, 1.2g sugar, 27g protein.


Nutrition Notes:

Significantly lower fat by substituting chopped turkey for ham and fresh cooked, diced potatoes for prepared mashed potatoes and subbing low-fat milk for heavy cream.  Lower sodium by replacing ham with low-sodium meat or fresh steamed veggies, by using less or no parmesan cheese and by using a salt substitute instead of table salt.
